Hi it’s on the hill over looking the city and the bay of Naples ,so take the funicular railway up and walk round...at at the ticket office then enter the castle from the bottom...walk to the top there’s not a lot to see on the way up BUT you’re rewarded with the most spectacular views once there....once you’re done head back down go to the monastery next door have a look around there too ,that’s quite interesting then walk down the Panoramic steps they are fantastic too
